Queirós, A.; et al. (2019): Connected macroalgal‐sediment systems: blue carbon and food webs in the deep coastal ocean

Queirós, A.; Stephens, N.; Widdicombe, S.; Tait, K.; McCoy, S.; Ingels, J. et al. (2019): Connected macroalgal‐sediment systems: blue carbon and food webs in the deep coastal ocean. In: Ecol Monogr 10, e01366. DOI: 10.1002/ecm.1366.

"Macroalgae drive the largest CO2 flux fixed globally by marine macrophytes. Most of the resulting biomass is exported through the coastal ocean as detritus and yet almost no field measurements have verified its potential net sequestration in marine sediments. "

The New York Times: Maybe We're Not Doomed After All

"The range of hypothetical geoengineering ideas for the Arctic is equally audacious. One is to use wind power in winter to pump water from the depths of the Arctic Ocean to the surface to thicken sea ice so that it is more resistant to melting."

Courthouse News Service: House Tackles Nat-Sec Implications of Climate Manipulation

"Injecting the stratosphere with chemicals so that humans can alter the effects of climate change sounds like a scheme from a disaster flick. But as the Earth warms and endures the effects of rising seas, temperatures and storms, the intelligence community told Congress Wednesday that scenario is just one of many ethical climate quandaries the world will face in coming years."

ArcticToday: Can massive geoengineering projects stem the worst effects of climate change in the Arctic?

"In 2016 an interdisciplinary team of scientists from Arizona State University suggested as a means to combat global warming that millions of windmills be erected in the Arctic Ocean. These mills would drive pumps that would lift seawater onto the remaining Arctic sea ice where it would turn into new ice that would help restore the power of the Arctic sea ice to reflect solar radiation."

Science: Promises and perils of the Paris Agreement

"Under the Paris Agreement, member states decide individually, in the form of nationally determined contributions (NDCs), what actions they will commit to taking toward the common goal of climate risk reduction. This institutional innovation offers a much-needed source of democratic renewal for global climate politics."
